TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

UPDATE: Nine fugitives have been located and taken into custody since we posted their pictures yesterday. Thank you for sharing this story and helping law enforcement make our streets safer!

Six months ago, we did this, and your tips helped take 18 dangerous criminals off the streets.

It worked so well, in fact, we're doing it again all day today in a special Tucson's Most Wanted: Criminal Takedown.

Just as we did last May, we're teaming up with 88-CRIME and the U.S. Marshals Service.

We'll show you the suspects, you call in the information and authorities take care of the rest.

It's really that easy. Only today, it's happening in real-time and we'll be showing your our progress live as it happens.

So make sure you tune in to every newscast on KOLD News 13 today. We'll even be popping in throughout the afternoon to show how your tips continue to make a difference, especially for victims' families still seeking justice.
